FontExplorer Pro doesn't work that well since I updated to Sierra and I'm looking for a replacement with similar features. Is Suitcase Fusion the best font management app now?
You should take a look at RightFont
yeah! right font is the best.
I've using it for a long time and works really well. You can sync from various locations, like a dropbox folder, you can favorite, test. It has really cool features and a lovely ui.
Does it also support iCloud natively? if not I can always just store my font assets in iCloud drive.
Yes, RightFont supports to sync fonts via iCloud.
Honest question: Which features do you want that Font Book doesn’t cover? Auto-enabling? The ability to handle 1000s of fonts well? Network sync?
Just asking, because I find Font Book is enough for me these days.
I'm looking for the ability to handle 1000s of fonts well! Any recs?
Probably not Font Book. :D
Auto-enabling and a large collection of fonts (that gets less organized as I switch font managers or computers) are important to me, network sync isn't. I didn't think of trying Font Book, thanks for the recommendation.
Ok, fair enough! I used to use Font Explorer X, but that was back in the days when I did more print design, and had to constantly play with different fonts, and auto-enable helped with that.
Now I’m mostly working on products, so they only need to deal with a very limited range of fonts.
One of the features that I'm looking for is a place to store Fonts I've purchased. Font Book is great, but it doesn't seem to have an iCloud sync store associated with it. That being said, I think it would be trivial for Apple to add iCloud syncing to Font Book.
You should try FontBase. It has a lot of cool features and is free.
Fontbase way exceeded my expectations. I've been using RightFont, and it does an OK job, but I don't like the interface. I like to organize my fonts in groups and doing this in RF is not nice. I might just switch to FontBase!
I've had the same exact experience. I found it because I needed a manager for Windows and that seemed like the best bet. Now i might switch my Mac over too.
Ditto. I really wanted to like RightFont, and it's nice, but the UI just doesn't map to my brain right.
That's an awesome way of putting it ;)
FontExplorer® X Pro
Ive been a suitcase user forever and have no complaints. Its really not that expensive for a tool that your going to use day in a day out.
My needs for a font manager are very few, but I really like Typeface. Has a few really nice design considerations, like overlaying the baseline and x heights over the fonts, and having a shape/size compare for when you're tossing up options.
If you're serious; Font Xplorer.
I've tried them all. Font Xplorer is the best by a country mile.
FontExplorer X from Linotype.
I've been using Suitcase for about 5 years. It's great!
I use Typeface, if you don't need features like activation font ecc… but just want to browse through your collection is a very good option
yea Typeface is good enough. Love to explore more
I find Ultra Character Map to be very useful.
more of a font viewer than a font manager, no?
